Here is the email I sent this evening to Whatcom County’s Homeless Strategies Workgroup:
Subject: Regarding 1. make-up of HSW membership 2. People being turned away from shelter during hostile weather
Dear Homeless Strategies Workgroup:
I listened to the February 14, 2020 Homeless Strategies Workgroup (HSW) meeting and wanted to offer some thoughts on a couple of issues that came up during the meeting. During one portion of the meeting there was discussion about adding additional members to the workgroup. There had been a suggestion that possibly DVSAS should have a designated position on the workgroup. And then it was suggested that category be more broad, so as to not single out one particular organization but to represent the type of population they serve.
